The Devon Horse Show and Country Fair (DHSCF) congratulates the 2023 class of “Devon Legends” who were honored at a black-tie event held at the Main Line’s iconic Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, PA, on the evening of Saturday, October 14. These individuals represent the top athletes in equestrian competition as well as those leaders and supporters who have helped make the DHSCF an important heritage show. The prestigious Legends include renowned Olympians, national champions, and other luminaries contributing to the success of the DHSCF. Wayne W. Grafton, DHSCF Chairman and CEO paid tribute to these inductees during the third annual event featuring dinner, live music, and dancing. As part of the evening, the 2023 Legends had their portraits taken that will be added to the “Legends Wall” in the Trophy Room at Devon. “Our 2023 Legends are an extraordinary group of equestrians, stewards and supporters who add to the rich history of our organization. Their contribution to the equestrian world will enhance the Devon experience for future generations,” said Wayne Grafton to more than 175 guests joining in this celebration.
